made sure that we cut taxes for the middle class, and in addition to that, when that occurred, what did romney do? romney said no, let detroit go bankrupt. we moved in and helped people refinance their loans. governor romney says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility of their lives. my friend said 30% are takers. these people are my mom and dad, my neighbors. they pay more tax than governor romney pays. they are elderly people who in fact are living off of social security. there are veterans who are not quote not paying taxes. i've had it up to here with this notion -- instead of signing pledges not to ask the wealthiest among us to contribute to bring back the middle class, they should be signing a pledge saying to the middle class, we're going to level the playing field. we're going to give you a fair shot again. we are going to not repeat the mistakes we made in the past by having a different set of rules for wall street and main street. making sure that we continue to hemorrhage these tax cuts for the super wealthy. they're pushing the continuation of a tax
spoke with our wolf blitzer and when wolf asked him to get specific on tax cuts, here's what happened. >> even though you're going to lower the income tax rates for people making let's say more than $250,000 a year, but you're going to eliminate some loopholes and deductions, exemptions, tax credits, is that what i'm hearing? >> that's right. i'll bring the rate down across the board. but eliminate or limit, rather, deductions or credits and exemptions and so forth, particularly for people at the high end, because you have to do that to make sure that distributionally we continue to have the high-income people still pay the same share, the high share they pay today. >> would that add up to the $4.8 or $5 trillion that's been estimated -- your comprehensive tax reductions would cost? >> well, actually, the president's charge of a $5 trillion tax cut is obviously inaccurate and wrong, because what he says is let's look at all the rates you're lowering, and then he ignores the fact i say we're also going to limit deductions and credits and exemptions. he ignores that part. obviously, tha

i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. lower tax rates increase growth. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> the interruptions, the facial expressions, and the facts. we're going to have the high lights, the low lights, the arguments and a fact check as well on the candidates' claims. it's friday october 12th. "starting point" comes to you live from danville, kentucky. >>> good morning, welcome everybody. you're watching "starting point." we're coming to you live this morning from center college here in danville, kentucky. things last night right here were pretty heated between the vice presidential candidates, no one had a bad night. nobody was too polite. instead joe biden, paul ryan, simply let it fly and when it was over the american people scored it a draw. cnn/orc poll of debate watchers showed that 48% felt that paul ryan won. 44% said that the vice president joe biden won. of course that would be a statistical tie when you calculate in the margin of error. we begin with cnn's dana bash with some of the highlights of the night. good morning. >> good mor

. "i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan." mitchell: "the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class - or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here... how could we ever trust him here? silverado! the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

's talk about taxes next. i'm going to let governor romney explain this for himself. >> well, i've made it pretty clear that my principles are number one, simplify the code, number two, create incentives for small businesses and large businesses to grow. number three, don't reduce the burden on high-income taxpayers. and number four, remove the burden somewhat from middle income people. >> now, you can get all that done in four years we'll have a bran new tax code by 2016. again, it's bold. everybody talks about doing it but nobody's done it really since reagan. finally let's take a look at the deficit. romney is planning to cut a lot more than funding to big bird and pbs. his plans include repealing obama care, reducing foreign aide and privatizing amtrak. you may notny that's that big of a deal. i use it all the time. romney says privatizing it will save $1.3 billion. the budget is made up a lot of small things. however he does it, his goal is to reduce government spending to 20% of gdp. gdp is the biggest measure of everything we produce in society. he wants to do that by the end 6 h

trillion tax cut to the american people, and you've got a -- not personally by name, but we now know it was you. let's just play a clip of this and see what your reaction is. >> well, actually, the president's charge of a $5 trillion tax cut is obviously inaccurate and wrong, because when he says this, let's look at all the rates you're lowering, and then he ignores the fact that i say we're also going to limit deductions and credits and exemptions. he ignores that part. obviously that was corrected by his deputy campaign manager, who said that she stipulated that in fact, the $5 trillion number was wrong. it's completely wrong. >> he's talking about you there, stephanie. >> he is. >> he says that you said it was wrong. >> that's right. right. piers, i'm really glad you brought that up. so there's this thing called math and here are mitt romney's tax cuts. if you add up lowering the tax rate by 20%, eliminating the alternative minimum tax, repealing the high income payroll, repealing the estate tax, and lowering taxes for corporations, that totals $5 trillion. so that's mitt romney's
these guys are in. >> on taxes. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. >> reporter: on medicare -- >> if they allowed medicare to bargain for the cost of drugs like medicaid can, that would save $156 billion right off the bat. >> and it would deny seniors choices. >> reporter: on the president's foreign policy. >> when we look weak our adversaries are much more willing to test us, they're more brazen and our -- >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarkey. >> reporter: he's preparing to make up for frz's mistakes last week, almost immediately launching the attack lines obama never used in his debate. >> it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. >> my neighbors, they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his income tax. >> reporter: before the debate, cnn was told paul ryan's team anticipated biden to be aggressive where the president was not e
and tax breaks for everyone and expensive wars abroad and whose fault is that? >> the president's policies have not gotten america working again. >> our goal was to turn it around. >> and the president has to stand up to take responsibility for it. >> we inherited the worst economic and financial crisis since the great depression. >> reporter: but what matters more is how we fix it. it is time to rebuild rome and here how we do it. first, do everything possible to put americans back to work, because nothing is more important to the recovery than reyating job, and revamp the workforce which means to revamp the schools and colleges to turn out workers who can compete in the labor force of tomorrow. and reduce the long-term debt and deficit and implement a plan thou to pay back what we owe instead of dumping on future generations. so who has the best plan to fix america over the next four years and beyond? that is is the question to ask for the glory of rome. dramatic, i know, but happy saturday. are we closer to fixing this economy before it is too late? some recent signs of recovery say yes
to this debt problem, led us to this deficit problem. they want homeownership for everybody. we want tax cuts. we want medicare part "d." we want an expansion of safety net programs and then this is what happens. there's no one in the middle to figure out how to pay for all this stuff the middle has been getting. >> and that's really honestly what this election is about. i think one of the things that i found fascinating, although i didn't think they quite got there, is when the two candidates were asked about the role of government, because that's what elections are always about, it seems to me. i mean, yes, you know, it's about turning out your base and about this or that, but it is mostly about what do you think the role of government is? should the government, for instance, be helping people buy homes through the deduction that we can take on interest rates on the home loan? that's a legitimate argument. is that really the role of government? and if so, somebody has to pay for it, but i don't think we have yet gotten down to the basics of that. what do you want your government to do becau
to tangle. >> i don't know what world these guys are in. >> reporter: on taxes. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and preserve important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. >> on medicare. >> if they just alou medicare to bargain for the cost of drugs like medicaid can't, that would save $156 billion right off the bat. >> and it would deny seniors choices. >> on the president's foreign poll. >> i when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. they are more brazen in their attacks and our allies are much less to trust us. >> that's a bunch of malarkey. >> reporter: the vice president seemed determine to make up for the president's mistakes last week, almost immediately launching the attack lines the president didn't launch in his debate. >> shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. my neighbor pays more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> before the debate cnn was told paul ryan's t
over 6:00. number one for ryan, budget and taxes at almost 7:00. ryan, budget and taxes, number two issue, ryan, the economy. mirror image of biden. vice president spent third most time talking about the problems in the arab world for the congressman from wisconsin. number three, entitlements, such as medicare, social security. that's our team of timers actually scored it. unlike the last debate, what was also striking, how similar two candidates were to the time they devoted to key issues, not because they agreed, instead because for every punch, an equally sharp counterpunch. some examples, each different almost completely. but at times, around 5:00 each were nearly identical. same on foreign policy side on iran, again, disagreement, and again about equal time. 4:30 each. likewise on ending the war in afghanistan. the vice president and congressman ryan spoke for nearly the same length of time about 5:00. however, what they said could not be more different. like night and day. correspondents standing by with each side. stay with us. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future tha
the other debate where he made stuff up and didn't know his own tax plan, making them stick to what they've been the last six or seven months. >> this is where i think paul ryan will have pressure on him and where i expect paul ryan to perform very well. i mean, i found obama's debate performance totally lacking in specifics. we still don't know what his tax plan is or his deficit plan or his budget plan. but paul ryan has become the personification for the democrats of all that is callous and cold and evil about the romney campaign. so ryan now has i think an opportunity to not only explain his plan more importantly romney's plan, but to explain it in a way that is compassionate and human. and i expect he'll do a very good job of that. >> there's a tricky thing that ryan has to do. and i think you suggested it there, carly. there's clearly a distinction between the ryan plan. actually, there have been multiple ryan plans on multiple fronts. >> that's right. >> and the romney plan. so ryan can't get lured into a debate over the specifics. >> i agree with you. >> here's the problem, mitt

after taxes is less money than it cost to rent. the big challenge, though, is that we're not getting enough people being able to move up out of their existing houses. we're not getting enough people to relocate because they are stuck in their homes even though they are current on their mortgages, even though they qualify for their mortgages, the home is worth so much less than their current mortgage amounts they can't get out and refinance. so there's go to be a new policy that comes in to address that challenge. >> ali can i mention something about housing for a second. i want to pat myself on the back. as you know for the last year or two i've been bullish on real estate and housing. and i think that we are seeing, this gentleman is right if you look at the major markets you're seeing a rebound in real estate especially in states like florida and states like arizona. and what's interesting is the two reasons i think you're seeing an uptick is number one, you got these mortgage rates that we're going to be telling our grandchildren the last time you go get a mortgage for less than 4
president obama said in the first presidential debate with mitt romney. the $5 trillion tax cut. they take issue with that figure. and so, i think the fact checkers more than busy tonight, brooke. >> jim acosta, see you next hour. >>> i want to talk about this debate tonight. usually the vice presidential debate gets limited attention. historically to game changer but that's not the deal tonight. after president obama's we'll call it less than stellar performance last week, joe biden is front and center facing pressure tonight. how's the rival congressman paul ryan preparing? ryan lugs around this ratty old briefcase. this is what i was talking about earlier. stuffed with 40 pounds of debate study material. you saw dana bash. this is what -- little show and tell part of the exclusive interview that dana scored and already in danville, kentucky, as well, where the debate as we mentioned is hours away. dana, all right. so you got this -- he has a huge briefcase. so i presume what he's saying there with all the study material is he's prepared. >> reporter: yes. he says that that's what he say
of the most critical issues facing the american voter. involving taxes, medicare, abortion rights for women, the vice president came out swinging today. unlike president obama. he immediately raised the issue of romney's controversial 47%. and he also spoke aggressively about the president saving the american auto industry, gm and chrysler in particular, but there was a testy exchanges on medicare and so many other issues. it looks like -- looks like at least to me, pretty much of a draw as far as this debate is concerned. we'll have full reality checks from our john berman, tom foreman, going through the facts described today. who was telling more of the truth. who was fibbing a bit. going through all of that tonight. you also saw those focus group results at the bottom of the screen. who liked what they saw. these were independent voters in virginia, we're certainly going to hear from them. erin burnett is standing by. we'll hear if any of them changed their minds as a result of what we heard. we also will get an instant poll. a scientific poll of people who actually watched this debate a

in benghazi to taxes here at home. but there is one item they agreed upon, getting the unemployment rate down below specifically 6%. how exactly do they plan to do that? here is what they said last night. >> get america energy independent in north america by the end of the decade. help people who are hurting with the skills they need to get the jobs they want. get this deficit and debt under control to prevent a debt crisis. make more things in america and sell them overseas and champion small businesses. don't raise taxes on small businesses, they're our job creators. >> they get out of the way. if they get out of the way and let us pass the tax cut for the middle class and make it permanent. they get out of the way and let us allow 14 million people who are struggling to stay in their homes because their mortgages are upside down but they never missed a mortgage payment. >> ali velshi is our chief business correspondent. ali velshi, welcome back. unemployment below 6%, to quote you, in your op-ed on cnn money, no more bs, please. care to extrapolate? >> right, so let's put the unemployment
military spending, giving tax cuts to the wealthy. this is what romney wants to do. but he doesn't tell us how we're going to pay for it. he won't tell one specific loophole that he'll close. i'm not reflexively partisan. i want to see a substantiative analysis of details o of what your plan is. don't hide the ball like we had in law school. tell us the truth of what you're going to do. ryan used to do that when he was talking about the ryan budget. he put specifics in the ryan budget. scary to me, talking about privatizing social security, voucherizing medicare, but if that's what you want to do, tell the public. i don't want to see this candidacy -- i remember just weeks ago, mitt romney was a severe conservative. now he's trying to tell people he's not. i really just want this one, and i think biden's going to give it to us, to be raw, authentic truth telling in this debate. >> president obama said on the radio, he was talking to tom joyner on tom joyner's radio show. and he said he was just too polite. another sort of analysis of what went wrong. let's play a little bit of that. >> the
